As you know The Yisrael Family Urban Farm is "transforming the hood for good" by using urban agriculture to empower, educate and employ the South Oak Park community.
Recently, the Far Western Region of the Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority recognized The Yisrael Family Urban Farm with an award for Environmental Stewardship for our efforts in urban agriculture. The ceremony was held on April 24th at the Double Tree Hotel in Sacramento, California.
The Far Western Region consists of Alaska, Arizona, Hawaii, Idaho, Nevada, Oregon, Utah and Washington.
In addition to the award, Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority shot a video about The Yisrael Family Urban Farm and our efforts.
